Tabor is pleased to announce that six students have been named Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. Seniors Ben Ackerman, Xindi (Cindy) Bao, Grace Mead, Christine Steege, Jose Sulaiman, and Yutian (Victor) Wei were presented a Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation at All School Meeting, recognizing their outstanding performance on the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Over 1.5 million high school juniors take the PSAT each fall (including Tabor’s junior class). Of those, the top 3% of scorers qualify as Commended Students. Based on her performance last fall, in addition to her status as a Commended Student, Steege also qualified for recognition in the National Hispanic Scholars Program. We are proud to recognize these scholastically talented Seawolves for their accomplishments!
With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
